A delicious addition to summer salads and slaws, kohlrabi is a member of the cabbage family. The whole plant is edible, leaves can be sauteed or added in stir-frys however, the base is most often used in cooking. The bulb tastes similar to that of broccoli stems and a texture similiar to potato. It is not a root vegetable, the bulb is actually the stem just above soil level which swells into a quite delicious vegetable. Best to peel it and then slice or chop into salads (raw), stir-frys or can be roasted.
Kohlrabi is a hardy biennial grown as an annual preferring rich, well-drained soil in full sun. Likes a lot of rotted compost mixed in. Plant this cool season crop in autumn and space 30cms between seedlings. Keep the water up, it likes a good drink which also prevents the bulb and stem becoming woody.
